XAML Magic: Turning an Ugly Silverlight Duckling into a Beautiful Photoshopped Swan

Over the last few weeks I’ve had the privilege of working with Ayende and the Hibernating Rhinos team on the new management UI for RavenDB. Never one to follow the herd (unless perhaps it consisted of Rhinos), Ayende’s bucking the trend and building it in Silverlight.

My part was to beautify the application by mimicking Photoshop designs that a designer had created for a new version of the RavenDB website. I was quite pleased with the way it turned out, and the screenshots Ayende posted on his blog got some favourable feedback.

Ayende asked me to write a blog post on the transmogrification process, and he has just published it on the company blog. Go read it, to find out how I turned this
